"Genera Orchidacearum is the first work to treat the whole of the orchids in a modern form based on molecular data from nearly all of the more than 800 genera." - Plant Systematics and Evolution
"As in the former volumes, layout is very clear ... The photographs are without exception good and informative, in many cases excellent ... The distribution maps are very clear, and easy to interpret." - Plant Systematics and Evolution
"... excellent book ... it is an absolute requirement for the professional orchidologist as a reference work. It fills a gap because no other up-to-date systematic treatment of
Orchidaceae down to generic level is available in English, and I am quite sure that no comparable work will be published during the next few decades." - Plant Systematics and Evolution
